    I see the GF3 + 14-42X kit for $525 on the employees' site. It's marked backordered but so was my 20/1.7 and that was sent out faster than my 'in stock' item.

    It looks like they're going to actually ship out soon, and gearing up for the GX1 release, with the X lenses in full production.

    The funny thing is the regular GF3/14-42mm kit is priced on there at $588, $25 more than than with the new lens...typical panasonic website pricing scheme.

    I really hope not, if that suggests that they think the GX1 is on the same price point as the GF3.

    I got suckered last week into thinking it was available. A local store in australia had it advertised as in stock and only $318. cheaper than they had the old pana 14-42!. I went through the online order but by the time it was finished all there was on the order was the delivery charge. turns out it was a mistake and the part # was removed while I was ordering. grrrr.
